little_boy_explores posted a topic in Industrial LocationsHistory The woollen mill was owned by Samuel Firth of Gatehead in Marsden, and opened in 1888. He also owned Holme Mill. By the 1960s, it was owned and run by Fisher, Firth & Co. which became Cellars Clough Woollen Mills Ltd, managed by another Firth son, in 1981. The company has now been dissolved. Situated just off the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, the mill’s pond is now a very popular fishing spot. Planning permission was granted for the conversion of the mills and former offices to 101 dwelling units, 9 live/work units, a resident’s gym, pool, shop, meeting room, bike store, car park and improvements to the access road. Previous planning applications have been unsuccessful as bats were found to be residing in the mill. The bats weren’t forcibly removed, so the hope was that they would eventually choose the ‘improved accommodation’ for themselves. Explore We decided to spend a day in Huddersfield looking at some of the heritage of the town... so we ended up in Marsden which is to the east of the town we came across two mill Cellars Clough and Bottoms Mill.. unfortunately we couldn't find a way in Bottoms Mill so instead explored Cellars.. It looks like some work was carried out some years back as part of the mill is demolished with brick piled around in the courtyard. The Mill is in poor condition and its difficult to access the upper floors due to both staircases been blocked by stone rubble although we did manage to climb the staircases the floors look ready to collapse at anytime.. at the top floor theres a ladder to enter what looked liked an office although we did not attempt the climb ... overall worth a look if not for the explore it offers an insight into how mills were constructed and the size of these is truly astounding .. Pics Bad video pics The mill is in a sorry state in 2018 But there is still some nice pics to be had in there...
More or less a total ruin but the cellars were interesting. I thought something was down there with me 'till I saw it properly & realised it was a bat. Quite a few of them down there. So I didn't shove my camera in any of their faces & didn't wake any of the others up. History - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piercefield_House Pictures Cellars I find the soot signatures from 1983 & 89 particularly creepy. Main sewer I think. Whats left of the central heating. Stables Folly Little cave - tried to get to the end & almost got stuck..... Giants cave - once had a giant statue above it but it either fell off or was purloined. Thanks for looking.
Visited with banned batz and andy. First time out for awhile included a trip here. This was owned by Samuel Firth of Gatehead, Marsden, and opened in 1888. He also owned Holme Mill.By the 60s, it was owned and run by Fisher, Firth & Co. which became Cellars Clough Woollen Mills Ltd, managed by another Firth son, in 1981. The company has now been dissolved.At its height it employed 180 people but the mill shut down in 1982. There are currently plans to try and convert it in to apartments.
Another instalment from Scattbugs and my road trip to Englandshire. Visited here with Badbatz and his buddy after a serious amount of fails, it felt good to take some pics lol! Local businessman Samuel Firth opened this woollen mill in 1888. Mr Firth and family were largely invested in the wool mill trade and were joint and whole owners in several other mills in the area. This mill was firstly run by Fisher, Firth & Co. which became Cellars Clough Woollen Mills Ltd, managed by Firth son, in 1981. I can't find any information to reveal when the site closed, but It appears to have been some length of time . Situated just off the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, the millâ€™s pond is now a popular fishing spot. Planning permission was granted for the conversion of the mills and former offices to 101 dwelling units, 9 live/work units, a residentâ€™s gym, pool, shop, meeting room, bike store, car park and improvements to the access road. On with the pics Thanks for looking
